.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...

LIGHT WINDS EACH MORNING ALONG AREA BEACHES WILL BECOME BREEZY
DURING THE MIDDAY THROUGH EARLY EVENING HOURS. PARTLY TO MOSTLY
CLOUDY SKIES IN THE MORNING WILL GIVE WAY TO MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES IN
THE AFTERNOON. ISOLATED MORNING SHOWERS WILL BE POSSIBLE EACH
DAY...WITH A GREATER CHANCE OF SHOWERS OCCURRING MONDAY AND
TUESDAY MORNINGS.

* A LOW RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS THAT ANY RIP CURRENTS THAT DO
  FORM ARE LIKELY TO BE WEAK BUT STILL MAY POSE A DANGER TO POOR
  SWIMMERS. RESEARCH HAS SHOWN RIP CURRENTS ARE TYPICALLY MORE
  FREQUENT IN THE VICINITY OF JETTIES...INLETS...AND PIERS AND
  THESE CAN BE QUITE STRONG ON DAYS WHERE THE OVERALL RIP CURRENT
  THREAT IS LOW...ESPECIALLY IF STRONG SOUTHERLY OR NORTHEASTERLY
  WINDS EXIST.

* WAVE HEIGHT AND PERIOD FORECASTS ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF DEEP OCEAN
  WAVES OVER THE OFFSHORE WATERS...NOT SURF CONDITIONS.
